An Illustrious Career

Rest in peace Jean Giraud "Moebius". You are now and forever one of the greatest champions of art I will ever know.

Please read this heart-warming story by Coleman Engle which features the Zelda series. Then look at Joe Lambert's sketchbook. Then look at Ryan Andrew's sketchbook. Then cry. Here's mine.

This weekend I tried to read a little Metal Gear Omnibus. I read Last of the Greats in it's entirety, and thought it wasn't so great after all. And I watched a pretty funny episode of Psych. It was an altogether unproductive weekend, as I didn't draw much, write much, and barely got outside. I don't know why I'm acting so depressed lately. I know there are money things . . . That shouldn't really be a deterrent to just going outside and getting some sun, though.

I've noticed some really pretty landscapes lately, and I want to get into the habit of sketching enviromments in perspective, and being able to drop characters into scenes. That's a major weakness in my art. I also want to get some practice fine tuning my use of color. I was pricing copics and shinhan markers this weekend, but they are way out of my price range. Maybe that's just the universe's way of telling me I need to start using my watercolors. While I'm at it, why not use my acrylics, and my crowquill? I wish my brain wasn't so boggled all the time. If I could just realize I have all the tools I need to at least start practicing my art----I would----I would, well, just finally be working.
